I've heard it costs $10 per month for tech support for this computer, I've also heard it's mandatory.
My father wants the computer for research. He has only used a computer a handful of times before and those computers ran Windows.
I have an opinion about this computer, but I would like to get more opinions from you all. Thanks.
